A 61-year-old pedestrian was killed by the Canadian Cash Cab car, although it wasn’t filming at the time, but was instead being driven to storage by one of the show’s producers.
The man “man was taken to hospital but died shortly after,” having been “struck by a replica taxi, after the vehicle finished production,”The Vancouver Sun reports. The AP reports that “a producer was driving the replica cab back to a storage facility after filming for the day had been completed,” and police said “said the circumstances leading to the accident were still being determined and no charges have been filed so far.”
A statement from the president of Castlewood Productions, Andrew Burnstein, said, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and his friends and his family. My heart also goes out to the driver of the vehicle, a member of our technical staff, who is shaken and devastated by this tragic accident, as is our entire team.”
